Legal Help For Uncontested Divorce In Alaska
Divorce does not have to be adversarial and expensive. If you and your spouse are able to agree on most matters, you can dissolve your marriage without the cost, delays and acrimony of court proceedings. However, you still should seek legal counsel to protect your interests and ensure your divorce agreement complies with Alaska law.
I am Dorothea G. Aguero, an Anchorage family law attorney with 25 years of experience. I have helped both men and women go their separate ways through marital dissolution, also known as an uncontested divorce.
The Importance Of Seeking Legal Counsel
Before you can get an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse must reach agreement on:
- Division of marital property
- Responsibility for joint debts
- Child custody and parenting time
- The amount of child support
- Spousal support (alimony) if applicable
Spouses who think they are in full agreement often discover they have not resolved or addressed everything. This can derail your uncontested divorce or lead to future conflicts and court proceedings that you were trying to avoid! As your attorney, I can review your tentative agreement and help you identify those remaining considerations and iron out the details.
Complying With Alaska Law
Your divorce settlement and parenting plan must be submitted to the court for approval. Before granting your dissolution, the court may require additional legal documentation. The judge wants to be certain that the agreement is fair under Alaska law and that both spouses consent freely to the terms of dissolution.
With my extensive experience handling contested and uncontested divorces across Alaska, I can guide you through the process to get divorced as efficiently as possible while still protecting your rights and interests.
